I am currently looking to break into pre sales through a SE role. I’ve gone through a few interviews but am struggling to make traction, I think due to my lack of hard technical skills. I’m currently in IT management consulting and have been in the health IT space specifically for the past 8 years. Would love to connect with anyone they may have made a similar transition from management consulting to pre sales. I have 2 years of experience in SaaS sales but that was about 4 years ago. Thanks!

What is pre sales? Always looking to learn about new paths

Pre sales includes roles and activities that occur before the sale has been closed. I’m specifically looking at sales engineer/solution consultant roles. SEs support the sales team by bridging the gap between the sales function and product development. They’re typically brought in to do the deeper client discovery, provide demos, and show the customer how the product can meet their needs.
